Our weekend was 100% relaxed and I would not have it any other way!
On Friday, Dane came home from work early and we binged on the new season of House of Cards.
According to the internet, we were not alone. Did anyone finish it yet? We are halfway and I’m hot-and-cold on how I feel. All I know is that Claire Underwood is my spirit animal. Cheers to my fellow bad-ass women out there.
Saturday we woke up early to conquer a new hike..more on that later this week. It was one of the scarier hikes we’ve done and I slipped a couple times thinking..terrific, this is how I’ll die. But! Here I am, so I’ll leave you with this panoramic stunner for now. Dane has gotten so good at snapping these!
We got home and I was immediately bit by the spring cleaning bug. Dane has had a cold for a week now, so me spraying Lysol in his wake just wasn’t working anymore. I deep cleaned our entire house, including baseboards and closets, opened up all the windows to air out all the germs and cleaned the sheets on every bed. I put away clothes, got rid of 3 bags of stuff we don’t need/use and threw away junk that has been sitting around for far too long. It felt so good!
Saturday night I had a work event I had been looking forward to all week. For any Hawaii readers, 53 By The Sea is a MUST!
The views, food and drinks were all amazing, plus they had live jazz music which is always a plus. Nothing better than dancing with your hubby under the stars! 🙂
|I don’t really care for seafood, but these lobster rolls came highly recommended and they were TO DIE FOR! I mean seriously, I’m still dreaming about them.|
And also….get a load of this staircase! So fun, right?
Sunday Dane’s cold really caught up with him, and while he insisted he was fine, I knew something bigger was at play. One chest x-ray later, he was diagnosed with pneumonia. Poor guy!
He stayed at home to rest while I ran errands, finished up plans for my sweet friend‘s baby shower next weekend and sweated off my delicious dinner at running club.
And now, my favorites from around the web….
Trimming The Fat: A Guide To Common Misconceptions Regarding Overweight Dogs (Shameless plug for my own writing, but stoked about being featured again by Just Labs Magazine!)
Chik-fil-a is urging a sense of community among diners by offering free ice cream to those who sit together and chit chat during their meal instead of using their phone — I love this initiative!
8 beauty mavens spilled their bags when it comes to must-haves for flying and I have to admit — I love them all! Connie Wang, fashion features director at Refinery29 is spot-on… “I have two priorities when I’m flying: One, to sleep as much as possible, and, two, to talk to as few people as possible. The most painless way to guarantee that both things happen is immediately putting on a really serious pair of headphones as soon as you sit down.”
